A specimen book of typefaces supplied as matrix fonts for the Ludlow Typograph Machine, a non-composing linecaster. This is the hardcover specimen book, produced in four editions (the first was an edition without letter designation which I believe is from June 1930, then there was an edition B, then an as-yet-unattested edition C, and finally this, edition D). This hardcover specimen book is distinct from the more common softcover or comb-bound abridged specimen book published under the name...

"Supplement to the Typeface Book." (Chicago, IL: Ludlow Typograph Company, n.d.) This booklet was present in a pocket on the inside back cover of registered copy D-1140 of "Ludlow Typefaces," a specimen book of typefaces offered as matrix fonts for the Ludlow Typograph Machine, edition D. It may or may not belong with this particular specimen book, however, as its page numbers (245-254) overlap with D-1140 (which ends with pp. 245-248). The pages bearing the same numbers in...

An essay in the form of a letter, expanded and edited for publication, from William Addison Dwiggins to Rudolph Ruzicka on the subject of typeface design. It is especially interesting because it explains Dwiggins' own process and goes slightly beyond abstract "design" and outlines the interactions between Dwiggins and the type development organization at Mergenthaler Linotype. "G," mentioned in the text, is Chauncey H. Griffith, typeface designer in his own right, but also...

The 1911 Supplement No. 2 to the 1906 American Type Founders' specimen book. It was digitized by Google Books from the University of Michigan copy. This version was assembled from page images from The Hathi Trust. Note that there may be some confusion in the Hathi Trust catalog between the Supplement (of 1909) and the Supplement No. 2 (of 1911). This is the 1911 Supplement No. 2, identified as such on its title page and bearing the Hathi Trust identification code mdp.39015036947730.

Cleland and also a two-page insert (printing code 350.12) of "A New Group of Linotype Matrix Slides" which was not present in the 1928...

A high-quality digitization of the complete 1923 edition of the American Type Founders (ATF) Specimen Book. Considered by many to be the culmination of specimen printing, it is an important, and massive volume, documenting the culture of printing, advertising, and typography in the early 20th century. This issue is optimized for mobile devices. This work is in the public domain. Digitized by David Armstrong/Sevanti Letterpress.
